Why does Choose Energy run a credit check?
The providers we work with require a soft credit check (which doesn’t affect your score) to determine if your credit meets their requirements. The provider may ask for a deposit to begin service if your credit score falls below that threshold. We’ll check your score with all providers on our marketplace at once so you can find the best electricity rates in Texas. Check out our deposits guide for more information about the credit check process. When you’re ready, enter your ZIP code to find electric plans near you.
